4:08 pm
in the history of politics. you never had crowds like this for midterm elections. but, you know, a lot of the people, a lot of them watching on television, i get great ratings. at least this speech does. i don't know about the others. they get it because they hear the noise. you cannot duplicate when you people --0, 30,000 you cannot duplicate that sound with 5000 people that are showing up to other rallies. know, for two years we have had big routes from the beginning. and by the way, you remember, "me" -- wewe" not never left centerstage. you know what that means, right?

4:11 pm
pretzels, the way they turned. when they saw trouble, they were able to turn. but that is the way the press shows us and i hope you the real crowd that is here today. and i hope you show -- and i hope you show the thousands of parte that are in another of the airport watching this on television. thousands and thousands of additional people. they will say -- "president trump and former president obama had wonderful crowds." ]> [booing pres. trump: but this election will decide whether we build on this extraordinary prosperity that we have created. did you see the numbers on friday?
4:12 pm
or whether we let the radical democrats take a giant wrecking ball to our economy and to our future. america now has the best economy in the history of our country. and it can be destroyed very quickly. that is why you have to get to the polls. in the last month alone, we 0,000 jobs and that is despite the hurricanes which georgia --chunk of those georgia farmers, i met with them. , our with sonny perdue great agricultural secretary and i met with a lot of the farmers. and these are great people. i will never forget it, actually. these are great, great people. id one of them said, "sir,
4:13 pm

4:14 pm
and he is now the secretary of agriculture and i told him, we are helping those farmers in georgia. and by the way, alabama got hit. florida --did florida get hit or what? we are helping them all. we are helping our farmers a lot. in addition to the deal we are -- in addition to the deal we made with canada and mexico. farmers got wiped out and we are going to help them. great people. great people. since election day, we have created 4.5 million new jobs and millionlifted 4.3 people off of food stamps. think of it. jobless claims in georgia just fell to their lowest level in 45 years.

4:20 pm
but tears were coming down. we turned the country around. the country was going down. but think in terms of justice kavanaugh. thek if he did not get appointment based on this woman's false accusations. think of it. how horrible that was. i think this was number four. and by the way, how about the other ones? this was number four. you will see others now but how about the other ones? but, listen to this. so supposing this was the final democrats who were so bad, so disrespectful, so horrible. right? how about the leak? how about dianne feinstein with the leak? i don't know about the leak. remember?

4:23 pm
less who they hitch. these are bad people and the press does not want to talk about them. radical resistance, and that is what they are, radical resistance takes power, they will move immediately to reverse america's progress and to eradicate all of the gains that we have made. party wants to raise your taxes. immediately job killing regulations. they want to take away and destroy your health care because that is what is going to happen. introduce socialism and totally erase america's borders. how about that caravan? do you want to let that caravan just pour in? idle think so. -- i don't think so.
4:24 pm
[crowd cheering] pres. trump: so we started the wall. one point $6 million. another $1.6 million just approved. we are building it in pieces and chunks but i want to build it all at one time. in the meantime, you saw last week i called up the united states military. we are not playing games, folks. you look at what is marching up, that is an invasion. that is an invasion. a lot of things happening. ask yourself, how do you think that formed? did you see the second caravan? and we pay these countries, by el way -- honduras, salvador.
4:25 pm
we pay these countries hundreds of millions of dollars which by the way will be stopping very soon. n ey do not do a dam thing for us. i asked vice president mike pence to call up the head of headsas, to call up the of all -- he called them and said, we do not want you to allow the formation of caravans in your country. we pay you hundreds of millions of dollars a year which is probably just stolen. and we don't want it. and you know what? -- lutely, we won't in the meantime, they known -- they do nothing for us. democrats want to invite caravan after caravan of a legal aliens to pour into our country. the same caravans that have violently overrun mexican soldiers employees. use all this -- we are not
4:26 pm
dealing with babies here. every time i say -- you have some rough people in there. the media says -- how dare you. these are rough, rough people in many cases. and if they are allowed to break through our borders, only larger and bigger, we have emboldened these people. it is not going to happen and by the way, you saw how good our military -- they got off those planes. i had so many calls and so many people -- and we look at those soldiers and you saw the barbed wire going up. that barbed wire. we have barbed wire going up because you know what? we are not letting these people invade our country. we want them to come in. we want them to come in, but a have to come in legally. they have to come in
4:27 pm
legally. and that is why i am sending a message today to the caravans, the criminals, to the human traffickers. do you believe -- human trafficking? because of the internet is more prevalent today than it ever was in the history of our world. worldwide, unbelievable problem. who would think we would talk about this? because of the internet, worse today than it has ever been. we are not letting in the smugglers. so, turn back now because you are not coming into the united states unless you go through the process. turn back. so, if you want more caravans and more crime, vote democrat. it is very simple. andou want strong borders save communities, vote republican.

fighter and a tireless champion for the people and for the values of georgia. and he was with me right from the beginning.

4:37 pm
to talk about another subject. please. and we got veterans choice past, by the way. he is always behind our police and law enforcement and he will never let anything bad happen to our second amendment which believe me is under siege. our second amendment. our second amendment, if stacey abrams get thin, your second amendment -- gets in, your second amendment is gone. gone. stacey and her friends will get rid of it. you would not mind someone taking your guns away? please, give all of your guns right now. abrams,opponent, stacey is one of the most extreme, far
4:38 pm
left politicians in the entire country. you know that. she wants to raise your income tax very substantially. she wants to raise your property tax very substantially. right through the roof. she supports a socialist takeover of health care which means you will never be able to see your doctor. just like the vets never got to see their doctor. and just like president obama, i'm going to be very nice, did not tell the truth when he said you could keep your doctor, keep your plan. he said it 28 times. and it was not true. put stacey in there and you will have georgia turn into venezuela. i don't think the people of georgia like that. abrams, and i spoke
4:39 pm
to law enforcement, i spoke to everyone, is really weak on crime. really weak on crime. that is not what you need. she wants to end the death penalty for even the most vicious and ruthless killers. stacey abrams voted against tougher penalties for violent our policeho assault officers. stacey abrams wants to turn your wonderful state into a giant sanctuary city for criminal aliens. putting innocent georgia families at the mercy of hardened criminals and predators. abrams voted in favor of allowing illegal aliens to receive public benefits. even -- listen to this -- hold to let illegal aliens
4:40 pm
public office. isn't that wonderful? and stacey abrams wants illegal aliens to vote. you know, that is one of the big deals. a like them coming in because we are winning. and they figure if enough of them come in, and eventually they will be able to vote and they will vote for the democrats, right? we cannot let that happen. for other reasons too but we cannot let that happen. she opposed requiring proof of american citizenship at the ballot box and she recently said she wants illegal aliens to be part of her blue wave. i think her blue wave is not going to happen. oprah here tot help her. oprah was a friend of mine until i ran for office.
4:41 pm
we divert arom this slightly. i think the media will check this. look at all of those cameras. terrible. a lot of people said, it should be frightening every day having to speak to -- one little , stutter, accidentally saying a wrong word, it is a major headline. it is a major headline. -- one little, tiny -- a little bit of a mispronunciation of a word. it is front-page news all over the world. you know what? you know what? the bottom line is, don't to make any mistakes. chanting] pres. trump: but anyway, so oprah, and oprah has been down to mar-a-lago and honestly before i ran for office we did
4:42 pm
very well and we had a good relationship. and i like opera. oprah, when she ended her show had her five most important people --the last week, remember? the lasther show in week. i think they are trying to burn the tape. to endorseas here stacey and i am here to endorse brian. and you know what? i hope you will listen to my endorsement. abrams will make your schools and neighborhoods unsafe and she will make your jobs disappear like magic. thatnow the magic wands president obama said that you will never get your manufacturing jobs act, you will need a magic want. well, we did. we did.
4:43 pm
but all of these reasons and maybe the best reason of all, he is a great leader, a strong man, a strong personality which you need and he is someone that will be a great governor of georgia. brian kemp. please come. [applause] [crowd chanting] [cheering] ! thank you so wow much. thank you, mr. president, we are so glad that you have georgia on your mind. i was just thinking backstage hadt my opponent -- she has
4:44 pm
obama, hillary, elizabeth warren -- nce, so we trump, pe dooley,p, pence, vince and herschel walker, the goal line stalker. president, on behalf of hard-working georgians want to thank you for your response to hurricane michael. i was on the ground down there as you were and the vice president was an secretary perdue and i have never been more proud to be a georgian to see the federal, state, and local response to our brothers
4:45 pm
and sisters in need. thank you very much. as you know, my up on it does not think a whole lot about farmers and people that work in hospitality, but your shoot -- but you sure do. we also want to thank you for the tax cuts. -- because oft that, with the leadership of governor deal, taxes were cut in georgia last year and with your help, i am going to do it again next year. we also appreciate you taking a chainsaw to government regulations at the federal level. [applause] because of that, we are having record unemployment, record job growth. you for your thank huge endorsement in the primary.
4:46 pm
it made a huge difference, as you remember. but -- but i want to thank you all for supporting -- i want to thank you all for supporting our president. and i want to thank our president for standing up and fighting for our country and fighting for hard-working origins. hard-working georgians. chanting, "usa!"] kemp: but as you all know, are thees the states laboratories of democracy and the president needs some help at the state level from time to time. so i want to encourage you all to get out and vote on tuesday.
4:47 pm
talk to your friends, your neighbors, and get the vote out. georgiago to work as republicans have done for the last 16 years under governor sonny perdue's leadership and gov. nathan deal's leadership. we will work hard with this president to continue to make america great again. thank you. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: beautiful. wow! [applause] but it is true, i generally have been working for getting great senators elected and working with david and everybody else. but we are going for the senators. we do whatever we can for the congressmen and congresswomen.
4:48 pm
but i have not done too much for governors. important race for georgia. i am here for brian because the governor of georgia means so much to our country. our country. so you have got to get out there. you have got to get out there. and this is a very worthwhile stop, in addition i happen to like the people of georgia very much. it gives me a good excuse to say "hello." if democrats gain power on tuesday one of their very first projects will be the socialist takeover of american health care. you know what that means? long waits, bad service, and a lot of problems. we will go over that because they possibly will come up with that hopefully in their campaign. the remaining left-leaning person. they will come up with that and
4:49 pm
you will see what happens. you will not be happy. the democrat plan would obliterate medicare and medicaid advantage for more than 635,000 georgia seniors who depend on it. republicans will protect medicare for our great seniors who have earned it and by the way, people do not realize this, who have paid for it. thank you. and very importantly, republicans will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions. we are doing it. the democrats like to spread false rumors. they are the ones that will not be able to because there will be nothing left when your system is obliterated. the democrats plan to destroy health care -- it also includes reigning -- raiding medicare to fund benefits for illegal aliens they want to pour into our
4:50 pm
country. as we speak, democrats are openly encouraging millions of illegal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders, and destroy our nation, essentially. because, you know what? without borders, we do not have a nation. the incredible thing is over the years we have been fighting for -- fighting so hard for other people's borders. and we don't protect ours but we are protecting it now. laws, theyhe worst are the worst laws that have given us so little and the democrats don't want to change the laws that they want the chaos at the borders. they think it is good politically. i personally think it is backfiring on them and i think big a illegal immigration costs our $100ry far more then billion every single year.
4:51 pm
that is more than double the entire state budget of georgia. is in illegal immigration also deeply unfair to american workers including african-american and hispanic american workers. you know that. african-american, asian american, hispanic american workers -- not fair. not only do the democrats' open border policy's drain our treasury, but they endanger every american community. you see that -- you see what is going on. heroin in the the united states enters through the southern border. along with roughly 90% of cocaine. of majority methamphetamines. and a substantial portion of the ultra lethal fentanyl killing our youth. these drugs have destroyed
4:52 pm
hundreds of thousands of lives last year. and killed last year alone, 70,000 americans. and they do not want to toughen up the immigration laws. i think they are going to do very poorly at the ballot box, but i may be wrong. ice.hey want to get rid of elizabeth warren wants to get rid of -- i cannot call her pocahontas anymore because she has no indian blood. it is a problem. she has no indian blood. i have more than she has and i have none. agoi said that a long time before she brilliantly sent out the test results. that was not a good test, elizabeth. leadershipe great when dealing with north korea, china, russia and all of these countries you had to deal with. that was not good. is she still running for president, brian?
4:53 pm
up in ohioing a guy who will be a disaster for the state. we want mike to juan. -- mike. she is pushing someone that will be worse than she is. last year alone, and ohio was just too smart. ohio, if you are listening, mike will make a great governor. so important. governorships -- people don't realize how important governorships are. they can destroy your state or make a great again. they can destroy it and quickly or make it even better. last year alone, our brave ice alienss arrested 127,000 with criminal records. think of that. [applause]
4:54 pm
including those charged or convicted of approximately 40,000 assaults, 12,000 sex and 180,000 murders. do you believe those numbers? and by the way -- ice. these are really tough people but they are great and they love our country. ,nd they are going in to towns and cities, and places and they are throwing ms 13 gang members out of our country by the thousand. -- by the thousands. and no one here wants that job. it is tough but they like it and they are doing great and we're going to protect them. want to abolish ice. they want to release drug dealers. and i missed 13 gang members --
4:55 pm
remember when nancy pelosi got angry at me because she said i did not speak well of ms 13 gang members? they go straight into your neighbor has. we believe that any politician that puts criminal aliens before american citizens needs to be voted out of office very quickly or certainly not voted into office. always standill with the heroes of ice, the border patrol, and law enforcement. and you have great law enforcement in the state of georgia. that i can tell you. this election is about safety and it is about jobs. for years, you watched as we let foreign countries plunder our wealth, shutter our factories and decimate our industries. you were victims of it. many of you.
4:56 pm
but those days are over. a have added nearly half-million manufacturing jobs and that is going up to almost 600,000 very shortly. those were the jobs that -- won't happen anymore. the jobs that we would've needed a magic wand -- they will never be brought back. i will tell you what they are, they are among the best jobs any state or country could have. and they are pouring in. 32,000nth alone we added manufacturing jobs. that is 1000 manufacturing jobs every single day. nobody thought that was possible. announced that we are replacing the horrible nafta incredible brando u.s.-mexico-canada agreement. usmca is a giant victory for
4:57 pm
georgia farmers, manufacturers, and dairy producers. they said it would not happen. it happened. we are opening them up. we have taken the toughest ever action to crackdown on china's abusive trade practices and we are doing very well. that is something that could also happen. and if it doesn't happen, we will do very well too. building other countries, we are finally rebuilding our country, thank you. because we are now putting america first. bold action taken to reduce the price of prescription drugs. we will see them come down. you saw a month ago when the drug companies rose their prices are substantially. name ofid -- get me the
4:58 pm
the head of novartis and pfizer and i made some calls. -- and theyiately immediately said -- we were only kidding. and that is when i realized how powerful the presidency was. [applause] no. pfizer and novartis and the others for doing that. we will see prices coming down. we are cutting out the middleman and middle woman. and you know what? i'm going to have a lot of people that hate me really badly, almost as bad as the left or the democrats, if that is possible. almost as bad as the democrats. but, you know what we will do? blame russia. let us blame russia. average premiums
4:59 pm
